Seconds in a year calculation

We know that 1 year has 365 days (366 days during leap year).

We know that 1 day is 24 hours.

1 hour is 60 minutes.

And we know that 1 minute is 60 seconds.

So if we multiply all that through, we have:

= 365 days per year x 24 hours per day x 60 minutes per hour x 60 seconds per minute

= 31,536,000 seconds per year

Of course, now that you know that there are 86,400 seconds per day, you can calculate how many seconds there are…

per week

per month

– per decade

– per century…

…and virtually every other expanse of time.
